As a learner driver, getting your head around Sheffield’s complex one-way systems can be a challenge! There are some fantastic places to practise driving in Sheffield. So if you're just starting out, you will have plenty to get your teeth stuck into, before you work your way up to tackling the more complicated road systems! But the good news is that learning on these roads will have you feeling and confident navigating the city in no time.
The industrial suburb of Attercliffe is just one great place to start. Follow Carlisle Street up to Manor and you’ll get plenty of practise on junctions, traffic lights and roundabouts with minimal traffic! We recommend keeping clear of the University of Sheffield until you’re feeling more confident, as there are likely to be lots of pedestrians to watch out for during term time.

We offer manual and automatic lessons in Sheffield, so you can take your pick.
We offer manual and automatic lessons in Sheffield, so you can take your pick. Make sure you brush up on both options before you decide between the two. One factor that is important to note is that a manual licence allows you to drive either kind of vehicle, whereas an automatic licence only qualifies you to drive automatic.
As Sheffield is very hilly, it may be a safer bet to choose automatic as it’s much harder to stall and so those hill starts will be as easy as pie. On the other hand, a manual car gives you more control so you can anticipate what’s coming up ahead and change gears early accordingly - this tends to be handy when you’re accelerating to join a dual carriageway, such as the A61.
